Introducing ProjectONE Artist: SARA JANE BOYERS

SARA JANE BOYERS is a California fine art photographer who, after successful careers in both the music and publishing industries, has returned to a serious focus on her photography.  In her work Boyers searches for that iconic element of ordinary experience that defines the whole, choosing to render it subtly and with a sense of beauty that is provocative and demanding.

Boyers solo exhibition at Craig Krull Gallery, FINDING CHINATOWN: AN AMERICAN STORY, showcasing her decade+ fine art exploration of the US & Canada Chinatowns, was critically acclaimed.  GRIDLOCK, photographs shot from her driver's seat car while stuck in traffic, was recently exhibited at the Leica GalleryLA.  WATER TO PAPER: PAINT TO SKY, a retrospective of the 104 year old artist Tyrus Wong that included a photographic "story" by Boyers of the artist's 40 years of retirement creating and flying his hand-make kites, recently closed at SF's Walt Disney Family Museum to open Spring 2015 at NYC's Museum of Chinese in America. 

Other work has been exhibited in museums, galleries & photo festivals including a GETTY PST exhibition at the Vincent Price Art Museum; Western Australia's FOTOFREO Biennial; DESIGN/REACTION at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, CHINESE AMERICANS: EXCLUSION/INCLUSION at the New York Historical Society and most recently, NO FIXED ADDRESS at The Leonardo, Salt Lake City.  Her award-winning photograph of the 747 Wing House was exhibited as one of ASMP's "Best Architectural Photographs of the Year."

Continuing projects include: DETROIT: DEFINITION, a study of her birth city as it again arises; SACRED.SILENT.WAITING, a contemplation of light, empty space and presence; and REVISIT_RENEW_NEW, an architectural exploration that also includes the 747 HOUSE, an architecturally significant experiment in repurposing.

Boyers' photographs reside in public and private collections internationally and are featured in various magazines, books and respected online media.  Her award-winning books and poetry are published by well-recognized publishers.

For SarahLeePROJECTS_ONE, Sara Jane is bringing prints from several current projects including Revisit_Renew_New and Sacred.Silent.Waiting
